Hetch Hetchy Valley in Yosemite National Park was described by John Muir as “one of nature’s rarest and most precious mountain temples" and was once considered one of the most unique and diverse ecosystems in the world.  However, in 1913 the city of San Francisco won Congressional approval to dam and flood Hetch Hetchy, thus burying this extraordinary valley under 300 feet of water.  Spreck Rosekrans is the Executive Director at Restore Hetch Hetchy and is leading the fight to bring back what was once lost.
